This is a yummy salad from Rachael Ray magazine. You can use stale bread and then no toasting is required.

This is a *yummy salad* Lainey! I made a half recipe last nite for 2 of us, used crusty baguette bread, added black olives since I had some I needed to use & also added garlic (a pers pref). I could not get fresh basil & had to use the dry stuff. :-( My only issue here is the amt of olive oil. I used 1/4 cup for a half recipe & found that was plenty for us. Using fresh basil may require more, but 1/4 cup oil per person is too much for me & I wonder if the amt of oil is inflating the nutritional facts for total fat & calories. All that said, we liked this a lot, it will be repeated w/the chgs I made & I hope I will be able to use fresh basil then. Thx for sharing this tasty recipe w/us.
